  1. In Day One you can set a password, but the data is not encrypted and can be read by anyone with physical access to your computer. See: Why I Don't Use Day One For Private Journaling
  2. I am happy that tables now work better in Evernote, but there are still a few frustrations. One is that the "grabber" -- the double-headed arrow in a table column -- is not where it should be. You have to mouse over the column to find it because it's not at the column border where you would expect it. Instead, it's floating somewhere in the column. Another is that if I add a column, either to the right or left of a column, it cuts the existing column in half. That is not the expected behavior in other apps that do tables. Then I have to resize all the columns to accommodate the new column. Not really complaining -- tables are much better than before -- but it's a little annoyance I hope will be fixed one day. My client is Mac 6.0.9 beta
  3. I am noticing an odd little bug when I'm typing. If I accidentally type an extra letter in a word, it is flagged with a red underline, as I would expect: e.g. flaggged When I remove the extra letter, the red underline does not disappear, even though the word is now correctly spelled. The only way to get rid of the red underline is to backspace and retype a letter in the word. Spellcheck does not operate this way in any other notes app or word processor that I use -- Text Edit, Pages, Scrivener, OmniOutliner, etc. all show the word as fixed once the extra letter is removed. It does not happen when I reverse letters or miss a letter. In those cases, the red underline disappears as soon as the word is fixed. This is a small annoyance more than anything else, but I wonder why it happens and whether it can be fixed. Anyone else notice this? I am using Evernote for Mac 6.0.5.
  4. When I worked for a law firm, many of our clients preferred to incorporate in and do business out of Delaware because the income tax law is very business-friendly. I'm not saying that Kuzma is doing anything shady, but there are those who do use the law for their own questionable purposes.
  5. Maybe there is a better way, but I always just open the PDF in Preview and print from there. The PDF is an attachment, and most attachments don't print as part of the note. The same thing happens with Pages documents; they have to be opened in Pages in order to print. Images do print, however.
  6. I have 8300 notes and LOTS of tags. I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one who finds them useful. In fact, tags are one of my favorite features of Evernote. Tags are a simple way to organize notes. I use them like temporary folders. Everything I need for a particular day or lesson gets a special tag. When I'm done, all I do is select all the notes with that tag and delete the tag. I suppose I could put them in a special notebook and delete that, but doing it with tags is faster, IMO. I find notebooks less useful, only use them for general areas: Home, Work, Finances, Reference, Projects, etc., to produce fewer search results. I create shortcuts in the sidebar for any tags I use to organize stuff in this way. Shortcuts are also easy to add and delete. As far as maintenance goes, I periodically delete the tags which have no notes, look at the ones with only 1-2 notes and decide whether I need them. Easy to delete or change the name of the tag. If I have two similar tags, I just add one tag to all the notes and delete the other one. It does not bother me to have tags with just a few notes, as long as they are terms I would be able to think of when searching by tag. The auto-complete function in the tag bar helps me name them consistently. When I search by tag, all similar tags come up, so it's easy to see if I've got notes grouped under similar tags. I rarely have more than 5-6 tags per note, so the visibility of the tags is not a problem. Whenever I create a new note, I give it tags. I also search for notes without tags when I get a chance, just to see if I've missed some, and I sometimes do a key word search and tag the results.
  7. +1 for bigger font size in sidebar and more contrast in tags list!
  8. Hmm. My encrypted notes stay encrypted on my iphone. What mobile device are you using?
  9. The Sidebar Options (view menu) allows you to show the notebook list in the sidebar. Depending on the number of notebooks you have, it might take up a bit of space, but you can drag things there.
